A tea meditation involves being mindful and present during all aspects of the tea ritual including making the tea, drinking the tea, and being aware of the environment and of the effects on your mind and body.
You can practise a tea meditation any time during the day. It’s an example of how to apply our meditation in daily life.
Donations are appreciated

Calm abiding meditation (Shamatha)
Wednesdays, November 2, 16 and 30, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Through the practice of the Buddha of Boundless Light, beings, especially those with faith, are guided to rebirth in Dewachen, the pure realm of immaculate happiness, joy and bliss. Rebirth there occurs spontaneously at the time of death, or in a future lifetime. All beings born there will accomplish perfect enlightenment.
Wednesdays, November 9 and 23, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Love, compassion, and wisdom—together known as bodhicitta—are the indivisible nature of the Buddha’s enlightened mind. Chenrezik (Skt. Avalokiteshvara), the Buddha of Infinite Compassion, is the embodiment of these virtuous qualities. Therefore, absolute Chenrezik is none other than love, compassion, wisdom. The figure we visualize during Chenrezik practice is symbolic, yet practising on this relative manifestation will usher our minds into the absolute state of bodhicitta.
Saturday, November 12, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Green Tara Sadhana
The all-victorious Saviouress manifests 21 emanations to help beings. Swift and efficacious in her blessings, Tara vanquishes obstacles and fear, and protects those in danger and difficulty who call to her. Daily supplication to Tara is for worldly and ultimate protection, assistance and benefit. The Green Tara prayer and recitation of the 21 Tara Praises avert and dispel obstacles.
Tuesday, November 15, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
In commemoration of Buddha’s descent from Tushita:
The Treasury of Blessings Sadhana
A practice of Buddha Sakyamuni. For all who, while walking, sitting, standing or sleeping, think of the moonlike Buddha or remember his tremendous kindness, the Buddha is always in front of them, and his blessing too. Through his teaching and blessing, they will quickly attain the state of Nirvana to serve all sentient beings.
Followed by Offering of Light
Thursdays through Sundays, November 17 to December 11, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
